Naguib Mahfouz
The Nobel Prize in Literature 1988
Mahfouz is the author of no fewer than thirty novels, more than a hundred short stories, and more than two hundred articles.

Half of his novels have been made into films which have circulated throughout the Arabic-speaking world. In Egypt, each new publication is regarded as a major cultural event and his name is inevitably among the first mentioned in any literary discussion from Gibraltar to the Gulf.
